Unidentified newt

I just bought a 10” Newtonian in a very used condition. Focal length is 85”. As you can see from the images the mirror is rather thick by modern standards. Comes with a unitron finder.

I am trying to establish provenance.

Apart from the 85” focal length writing on the back of the mirror I can’t see any other signs of identification.

If you have an idea of where this may have come from I would appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks in advance
